Hi,

Is there a way to create an invisible folder in C# outlook 2007 that

can be shared among all users?.

The reason for this is im trying to store some specific information

that needs to be globally available..to all users..(eg: config

settingss...) .... soan ivisible folder with these properties will do

the trick right??

Any suggestions or help is really appreciated !

Thanks!

Not really, no. For Outlook 2007 you'd be best off using a StorageItem

(hidden item) in the Inbox of each mailbox.

What about a StorageItem in a public folder?

Yes from Extended MAPI or Redemption, not from the Outlook Object Model I

don't think.

I've never had any success creating a hidden item in a public folder using

StorageItem. I get an error that the folder is read-only or doesn't support

hidden items. Since I can do it using Redemption I assume it's locked down

by Outlook for public folders.

Ah, now my memory kicks in. I think you're right about StorageItem being

unavailable in public folders. Too bad.

It's a totally artificial limitation, since RDO can create a hidden item in

a PF.
